Skyharbour To Resume Drilling On Sidace Lake Property, Red Lake, Northwestern Ontario

October 18, 2004

Diamond drilling is scheduled to resume immediately on the Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (70%), Consolidated Abaddon Resources Inc. (30%) owned Sidace Lake property in the Red Lake area of northwestern Ontario. Drilling will focus on a belt of mafic and ultramafic volcanic rocks identified from the summer exploration program. During the spring and summer the companies carried out a program of geologic mapping, detailed prospecting, rock and soil sampling that focused on a 2 km strike length of foliated volcanic structures that extend to the northeast of Sidace Lake. The companies propose a 4 to 6 holes diamond drill program that will include approximately 5000 feet of drilling for its fall 2004 exploration program.

The northeast trending volcanics are interpreted to be an extension of the geologic sequence hosting gold mineralization on the Goldcorp / Planet Exploration property that adjoins the Skyharbour Resources Sidace Lake property on the west boundary. Goldcorp has recently resumed diamond drilling on its Planet ground. Previous drill results on the Planet / Goldcorp work programs have returned gold values of up to 5.36 grams per ton over 36.4 metres (see Planet news release dated July 16/03).
